Pokeme.com - It's all about the Meme!
Hilarious. Witty. Fun. Addictive. MEMEs are to internet humor what oxygen is to life, totally essential.
We've all seen them in different forms and shapes. They're all over the internet. They depict today's fast, robust, dynamic culture. MEMEs are the viral spread of short, humorous ideas through words, images, and sometimes videos.
The question comes to mind "WHAT is a MEME?" Well, I'll tell you... A MEME (contrary to common belief it is read in the same way you would read "cream" - mind blown!). A MEME is a social idea, a hypothetical situation, an irony, an observation, a commentary, a statement, etc. It is usually expressed using a current, topical, or pop culture image with humorous captions added. A great example is the "overly attached girlfriend" that became a major internet sensation and struck a chord with internet users who felt that their girlfriend or someone they knew had similar characteristics. Users around the world had a great time sharing their own stories using her picture. All it required was a picture and a personal story. This is not the only MEME that has been inspired by a real life person. "Bad luck Brian" has almost become synonymous with people sharing the story about their bad luck, "Scum bag Stacy" has become the major choice for people to mention about the horrible exes.
To go in detail about how a MEME spreads requires an understanding of how internet humor works. A lot of information is spread by internet "word of mouth" aka using the "share" or "like" button. The immense social media presence means that ideas which people "like" get spread quickly. You "like" a picture in your Facebook feed, you "share" it and bada bing, bada boom! all of your contacts have access to that picture! Anyone from your contacts "liking" or "sharing" the picture means that the reach of the picture has increased in truckloads! That's going "viral"!
Not only that, there are internet forums where people frequently visit to find humor and get rid of their boredom. A lot of these websites have garnered enormous popularity with the rise of MEMEs - so much so that some of them have earned kajillions of dollars of revenue per month! The traffic stats are mind boggling and the sheer volume of people depicts that the MEME revolution is now in full swing.
Now the question comes - why should you be unaware and left lagging behind to a trend that is ruling the internet? The answer in most cases is simple - lack of skill of creating your own MEME. Funny MEMEs are hard to make and require not only a good underlying story; but a skill that not everyone has. Even with today's technology it's not easy editing images to create MEMEs... until now!

So much that even major firms across the world have started using them in their advertising. "Much wow, such nice, so cool" sort of phrases have been used in advertisement as far as Cleveland and Sweden - a reference of a famous internet MEME called "Doge the dog." Generating a meme is not just about being funny, it also becomes the point of connection to a vast amount of people.
